Marat Rakhimov, the head of the local metro construction organization MUP Kazmetrostroy, told us about the plans to start the TBM in August. The preparation work is carried out at several future stations. The utility lines will be relocated soon.

Kazan has been waiting for this construction for a long time. The traffic issues increase due to the lack of bridges across the river Kazanka that divides the city into two parts. The first time the new metro line was mentioned in 2015 when IKEA announced the intention to invest 1 billion Rub. The project was not implemented nevertheless.  The federal funding was out of the question, and the regional was enough only for geological survey.

In February 2019, the Kazan City Administration once again remembered the project. The design institute Tatinvestgrazhdanproekt was chosen to complete the documentation.  The first section of the new metro line will include three running tunnels, four stations, service tunnels and space.

The running tunnel will have the following lengths: 930 metres, 820 metres, 2.1 km.

The design conceptions will be accepted from June 2 to June 14, 2019.
